What style photographer are you?

At High Class Studios, we try to match the needs of each couple. We understand the need for beautiful posed pictures as well as the essential candids which capture the story of your day as it unfolds. Most weddings consist of both classic and contemporary bride/groom poses, formal and informal group pictures, and a large number of candid pictures. I also specialize in detail pictures, helping record all of your planning! From your flowers and wedding cake to the aisle decorations and more, we photograph all aspects of your wedding.

Do you remove Blemishes?

Of course I do! In fact, I will edit EVERY single one of your photos (not just a select few) and you will look amazing in ALL of them!

What equipment do you use and do you have a backup?

We shoot with only top of the line digital cameras. Our main cameras are a Canon 5D mark 2 or 3 (Amazing in low light) with many incredible lenses (my favorite being my 50mm F1.2 L USM), 600 EX-RT flashes when necessary. Our backup is a Canon 5D Mark 2. We will also always bring a full studio lighting kit (Just in case)

What is the most import consideration I should make before booking a photographer?

Definitely feeling comfortable with your photographer. Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life and it’s going to go by even faster than you think! Therefore, it is vital that you feel comfortable with me, as your photographer. I would like you to relax and enjoy every moment! And know that I’ll be capturing your day for you to remember foreverI have a very natural approach and I don’t like to be in the lime light. It’s your day and I want you to feel like a princess.

Do you travel for weddings?

Yes! There is no distance too far! Obviously if it takes us out of the state or country, you will have to pay for airfare and hotel accommodations, but we love to travel! Our High Class photographers have been to many countries around the world photographing the people and all of the world’s beauty.

Q: Do you shoot on digital or film?

We shoot only digital nowadays! We also will shoot everything in color and then will change a select few to Black and White or Sepia tone after.

Do you work with an assistant?

Some of our packages do, but you can always add a second photographer to any package at an additional cost. Having two photographers means you get twice the photographs, multiple angles, and a smoother, faster portrait session with your family and wedding party.

Q: What kinds of weddings have you photographed?

We’ve had the pleasure to photograph nearly every type of wedding and some unusual ones in other parts of the world. I have photographed informal and formal Christian ceremonies, LDS, Chinese, East Indian, Jewish and even non-religious weddings.

How much time do you need for photos?

For the best results I’ll need the following:

Decor shots: 30 min. (it’s best to do this before I come to you, because by the time I arrive at the reception all the guests will be there).

Bride before the ceremony: 1 hour

Ceremony: 30 min – 1 hour

Family & Group shots: 20 min – 30 min

Couple photos: 1 hour +

Reception: all depends on you

Why should I use a Videographer?

Very simply put. Professional, State of the Art Equipment is important and we have that, but most of all, an eye for capturing emotion and the trained eye for the editing is everything! Everybody recognizes good cinematography, and everyone is now accustomed to viewing it on widescreen TVs. Even the best footage needs to be presented in a watchable timeline. Think about any TV show you watch and its timeline.

Will there be bulky equipment?

No. The cameras are very compact. During the ceremony the groom will wear a very small black wireless mic.

How many cameras will you use and how long will you be at my wedding?

That will depend on the package you choose. We will guide you in that selection based on your venue, your budget and the finished product you are looking for in order to have a post production that you will want so share with everyone!

What should I look for in a Videographer?

EVERY videographer has a different style. Spend some quality time and check out the actual movie samples to see if that is the style you are looking for.

What do you mean by "Cinema-Style"?

ALL footage is produced to have a “Cinema-Style” look. Our wedding videos look like movies in dramatic Cinematic Style like real films You would see in the theater. Film has a nicer, more classic texture and is far superior.

Can I make suggestions for my movie?

Yes. Before your wedding we will meet to go over the details. Having an idea of your personalities is key in order to accurately reflect to two of you. This will be the time we discuss others you wish to include in your film as well.

Are you and your team available for travel?

Absolutely! We will show you some footage of destination weddings we have produced. We can give you a quote including travel.

How do I book you?

We will create a contract for you. A $1000.00 retainer fee is required to reserve your date. The balance is not due until 30 days prior to your wedding date.

How long is the finished DVD?

Your DVD menu will have different features: The main Movie will be about 45mins. The Speeches will be full-length (uncut) as a separate option and The Extras features more scenes that you should have.
